Forum: GratefulDead Subject: Re: Remember when this was a GD Forum?

Yea I remember it like it was yesterday.

Of course, there are quite a few non-Dead threads lately. Hell there are even some non-music threads. And there are some I wished I hadn't read, but no one twisted my arm.

Hey even Jerry couldn't live on nothing but Dead. JGB, JGAB, OAITW, LOM, Reconstruction, Garcia/Kahn, Garcia/Wales, Garcia/Saunders, Rainforest Band, David & The Dorks and he sat in with NRPS, CSN&Y, Jefferson Airplane, Brewer & Shipley, Paul Pena, Peter Rowan, Warren Zevon, Country Joe McDonald, Ken Nordine, Ornette Coleman, Bruce Hornsby, Bob Dylan, Ned Lagin, Sanjay Mishra and more.

So it seems this forum in really no more tangential than Jerry Garcia.

This forum has become like a family for many of us. And since you can choose friends, but you can't choose your family you have to learn to take the good with the bad and even ignore some of the crazier relatives.

BTW, besides having the absolute best GD version of H2H, 4/29/1971 is a very strong show that everyone should listen to. And please don't neglect the NRPS set from the same show.

You're right, Jerry did have other "musical" bands, but he had the sense to separate his political leanings and such from the stage.

I guess after I had read days and days of sports, news and random crap that have nothing to do with anything, I felt compelled to say something.

in response to jerry's many musical connections- i recently spent a large chunk of time in an automobile (like, a whole year) and wound up playing some pretty dumb games to pass the time. one of them was "six degrees of jerry garcia". it was played just like "six degrees of kevin bacon", but using jerry instead of kevin bacon. the fact that jerry was working for so long and was fairly casual with collaboration led to some pretty funny connections.

then there is Jerry Favorite Ice Cream, Cherry Garcia. Dead legend has it he was given unlimited Ben & Jerrys Ice Cream in exchange for using his name "Cherry Garcia"

Which along with cigarettes, probably led to his early exit.

"So it seems this forum in really no more tangential than Jerry Garcia"

I'm not so sure about that. So far as I know, Jerry never touched on the subject of roasted testicles.... or braised testicles either for that matter, either musically or otherwise. Of course, I am not completely versed in his entire canon of work as yet, so there is still the chance that I may be proved wrong some day. :) :)
